Hanging Around for Ages
Photograph by David McLain

In true Italian fashion, chubs of Genovetta dangle in the Parma Sausage company's climate-controlled aging room for up to 90 days, soaking up spices and drying to perfection. Born in Parma, Italy, in 1897, Alessio Spinabelli had a knack for making a good salami. He and his children set up shop in Pittsburgh in the 1950s. His descendants have been using his recipe ever since.
